MHS-DHS Beats Lincoln Christian, 26-18
In a chilly early October contest in Milford Friday night, Milford-Dorchester opened up a first half lead against a solid Lincoln Christian squad and never looked back. The combined Eagle-Longhorn squad beat the Crusaders 26-18.
Christian did score first in the opening quarter, but MHS-DHS answered relatively quickly with a 46-yard run. The Crusaders recaptured the lead in the second quarter, only to find themselves trailing following a long march by MHS-DHS that was capped off by the first extra point of the contest.
MHS-DHS added another TD and point-after, increasing their lead 20-12 at halftime. Things got a little tight in the third quarter as the score narrowed to 20-18, but a TD run by DHS-MHS' Havlat ensured a 26-18 victory.
The Milford-Dorchester squad is now 4-2 on the season. This coming Friday, they will travel to Raymond Central in a 7 p.m. contest, followed by a game in Milford against Lincoln Lutheran on Oct. 17.
